“A Brave attempt”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

The Black Lion has reopened after a major refurbishment (the Hotel accommodation will be ready soon) and is concentrating on the restaurant business. Last night we went for a meal there with two of our friends. The decor didn't really work for us; the artwork clashed badly with the olive green wall paper; the white sofas (not the best thing to sit on when dining) didn't go with the chunky tables and different chairs. However, the staff were attentive and charming. The menu choice was limited to 4 starters, 4 mains and 3 desserts/ cheeses. When it arrived the food was acceptable but nothing out of the ordinary. Presentation was adequate. The mains were hot but at £18 we expect a better steak and rather more sea bream than we got and they were served with roast parsips, boiled potatoes and sprouts - not the best combination! The sweets were ok. The bill also included the drinks for another table as well as ours! When this was pointed out it was rectified with profuse apologies but still came to nearly £50 a head (but this did include a bottle of champagne and a decent Rioja)
